You’re feeling exhausted, overextended, and stuck. You’ve tried everything you can think of to feel worthy: academic achievement, career success, seeking romantic relationships, and more but these things have only helped you to feel worthy temporarily. You know you are in the world to do great things but feelings of self-doubt and low self-worth are holding you back.

If you are feeling any of those things, know that you are not alone. I struggled with low self-worth for years and now embrace the liberating feeling of knowing that I’m worthy. I believe that no one should have to walk this difficult journey alone.

That’s why I’m passionate about helping you to connect to your unconditional self-worth and live life full out. I’ve spent the past 12 years working with individuals, couples, employees and organizations to embody mental wellness in their everyday lives and to engage boldly with the world.

I believe that the world is better when everyone has the freedom to be themselves and contribute their gifts, and I’m committed to empowering you with the tools for this journey.

On this transformative journey, you will connect to the true source of your self-worth and be equipped with the tools to be unstoppable in life and work. When you know you are unconditionally worthy, your life will be filled with peace and joy and you will confidently share your gifts with the world.

I first shared the concept of unconditional self-worth in a TEDx talk I gave in 2018. New to this concept and want to learn more? Click below to watch my TEDx talk.

On the the Unconditionally Worthy podcast I will guide you on your self-worth journey through sharing personal stories, insights on how self-worth affects our relationships, and practical advice to help you connect with your unconditional self-worth. The podcast launches on 2/16/21. Sign up below to be the first to know when new episodes are released.

I share my wisdom about unconditional self-worth through dynamic talks and workshops that leave people feeling uplifted and inspired. Click below to learn more about my speaking offerings.

More About Me

I currently serve as the Director of the Clinic and Community Programs at The Family Institute at Northwestern University, where I have an active clinical practice treating individuals and couples.

I received my bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Stanford University and earned my PhD in Clinical Community Psychology from DePaul University. I served as a Staff Psychologist and the Coordinator for Multicultural Outreach and Support at The University of Chicago Student Counseling Service for four years.

My why: Growing up, I always cared deeply about people and often fantasized about a world where everyone was loved, accepted, and able to freely share their gifts. As an adult, I am committed to making this world a reality.

My heart will always be in Southern California, but I call the Windy City home. I live in Chicago with my fiancé, and I have a deep appreciation for the city’s iconic restaurant scene. Music and summer festivals spark immense joy in my life, and I love cooking and dancing.
